I’m Karen

Not Your Average Web Designer!

It all started as a hobby!

Years ago, a friend asked me to build him a website for his recruitment agency. Once launched, he offered me a few hundred bucks. As it turns out, I had a knack for it. This was my first ever paid website gig! Shortly after, Web-Sta was born!

Close to a decade and half later, Web-Sta has grown and is now more than a “One-Woman Show!” I’m backed by a small yet extremely talented team who are technically-skilled and experienced in their own fields including: graphic and web design, copywriting, animation, and content creation.

I now help small and medium sized businesses all over Australia achieve their business goals through well designed websites, clever content marketing and training programs.

“I nearly became an art teacher!”

I’ve always been creative. Drawing, painting even dancing.

Equally, I was obsessed with selling and business! I drove my parents bonkers with hair-brain ideas to sell my sketches and hand made jewellery. I even sold homegrown mangos on the side of the Bruce Highway.

When selecting my University Degree, I was originally accepted in art teaching, however I had a change of heart! I rejected that offer to enrol in a 3 year business degree at USC on the Sunshine Coast. Mix that with a several short courses, online training, multiple marketing roles and YEARS of self-teaching, here I am. 14 years on and 100s of websites later!
